Category: Education, Leisure and Cultural Activities

Views are being sought on the presumption of mainstreaming which will ensure that local authorities have the guidance required to help their decision making in this area.

Deadline: February 9th 2018

The new guidance will look to encourage a child centred approach to making decision about placement and aims to bridge the gap between legislation, policy, and practice.
